    Re: Mandolin Mount Rushmore.

    I don't see a need to "rank." All these great artists and more can share whatever title or stage. If they need to be on the side of the mountain just do holograms, switch them out every few days. . .

    They're something anyone looking for a great mandolin should try if at all possible, or just have Will build you one.

    I have two Eldorado straps, like them very much. They're leather, not cloth, but simple, high quality, comfortable.

    I'll offer what will be a pretty contrary opinion. I don't feel it's essential to play an instrument before buying it. The usual caveats here: my own opinion, experiences, tolerances, and other...
